On Day 6 of the ongoing Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Team Nigeria competed in two sports unlike on Day 5 that they only had one representation.

Samson Opuakpa who was one of the Nigerian Swimmers given wild cards to the Games, finished 3rd in this heat with a time of 24.85s. Opuakpa could not qualify for the semi finals after placing 59th overall, as only 16 swimmers with the fastest times go through.

Meanwhile in Basketball, Nigeria fought gallantly but it was not enough as they were beaten by world number two ranked team, Spain.
